Bedlam is the biggest college football game in the state of Oklahoma each year, but it might also be the biggest game in the country this season.
During SB Nation’s Wake Up, College Football, Dan Rubenstein and Richard Johnson discussed if Oklahoma and Oklahoma State’s November meeting was shaping up to be college football’s “game of the year.”
Both Rubenstein and Johnson agreed Bedlam appears to be the biggest game on the college football regular season schedule following three weeks of action.
“I would say [yes] now, as where we stand now. I think it’s a situation kind-of like 2006 where it’s you know two of the best teams in the country are blood rivals and you know they’re going to play later in the season. … I think where Bedlam is in the schedule tells you a little bit about the fact that it’s the game of the year, or at least the Big 12 telling you that it’s its game of the year.” – Richard Johnson, SB Nation
Rubenstein said the 2017 Bedlam match-up features the two most complete teams facing each other in 2017, praising both offenses’ depth and playmakers on defense.
Oklahoma and Oklahoma State face each other Nov. 4 in Stillwater, Okla. Although, if both teams enter Bedlam undefeated and run the table following Nov. 4, the two will see each other again in the Big 12 Championship in December.
